The "Butler vs. Bullying" campaign reached over 20 schools or organizations and worked with over 6,000 students in its first year and strives to reach an additional 10,000 students in its second year.
In his "Butler vs. Bullying" campaign, LeRoy is taking a grass roots approach by striving to bring professionals, teachers, parents/families together to discuss, in an open microphone format, the social problems that derive from bullying.
Over the past year, LeRoy has traveled to schools and churches throughout Wisconsin to sit down with people who are recipients of bullying tactics and those that have performed behaviors of a bullying nature. He has had the opportunity to share a portion of this story with professionals, teachers, parents, and youth who know the unfortunate impact bullying can have. His approach has been to bring awareness to the problem, to have an open environment to discuss the problems at hand, and to find resolution that is positive moving forward. His success in this approach has led him to want to work with other organizations, schools, churches, and professionals to bring a more global awareness to this social problem
"This approach allows the kids to learn to be leaders and not followers. This problem cannot be ignored any longer and it is our goal to provide a place for these kids to feel free to open up about the problem and be a leader in helping us solve this issue", stated LeRoy.
LeRoy was known for being a great teammate as a member of the Green Bay Packers and now he is teaming up with companies throughout Wisconsin to bring his "Butler vs Bullying" campaign into local schools.
